Snow Day!

Why yes, we live in Mississippi, and yes, we got 6 inches of snow. For here, that is alot. The girls loved it though, we spent sometime outside then came inside for lunch and hot cocoa...

Then back in our PJ's for arts and crafts. I found this Blog Post from Tip Junkie for fabric flower patterns. There are some great ones, but I chose the pointy petal tute to try... The girls helped me

Rena turned them right side out and Evie used the corner poker thingy to make nice sharp tips. We ended up raiding the scrap bag and my button jar and making a few!

They are really fun to make, and take so little fabric! We attached them to barettes, so the girls could wear them in their hair.

this one Rena is modeling is my favorite, it is green white and blue and I used one of my great granma's fruit button in the middle. I'll probably be wearing this!


  1. Oh, I LOVE these! Did you sew, or did the girls sew too?

  2. I tried to teach evie, and she helped string the petals, but then got her finger stuck on the needle and that was it!
